What is the outlook for labor markets across the globe? As the global economy continued to slow in most regions of the world in 2011, an even slower expansion is expected in 2012. All eyes are on Europe, where the sovereign debt and banking crisis is far from over. The U.S. economy has held steady in recent months, but there will be significant risks in 2012. This webcast features a discussion about the implications for labor markers in the United States, Europe, and Asia (including China), as well as the outlook for employment, unemployment, compensation, availability of workers, and competitiveness.
